2019 8th Annual PamaBEAST Series
Pamakids are all over the races, from track to cross-country to ultras, but what about a series that tests your speed, hill-climbing, donut-eating, and Pamakid-camaraderie skills all in one?
To win the awesome Pama-prize and make your mark in this inaugural Series, you must be a Pamakid and finish with a point total in the top 20 of participants (likely will require 3-4 events or 6-8 points or more).
To sign up for the series, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know if you’re interested in volunteering at any race.
The series is free for Pamakids (except usual fee for track workouts). For non-Pamakids, race day registration is $5; kids under 18 run for free. All runs are fun runs.
